From Deb - Christmas 2009

'Three children wake up in a basement room. They have been drugged and taken from their beds in the middle of the night. Now they are here. Alone.

Where are their parents? Who can they trust?

The family has been betrayed to the government and Salt Cottage, their home on a cliff top above the ocean, is no longer safe. Their mother's scientific work has put them all in danger. To protect them, she must let them go. She must put her faith in an old family friend - and in her children's own resilience and courage.

The Book of Rapture is the new must-read novel from Nikki Gemmell. Searing, provocative and unputdownable, it's a book of our time that challenges our beliefs about science, about children, about marriage and trust. As passionate as her international bestseller The Bride Stripped Bare, it will compel, seduce and haunt you.'

Just finished this one - and I'm still waiting for explanations. How can each child set out to explore and not tell what they saw on their return? And who is G? Is it a typo for B? After all, he's the only one with a key! And if a father hadn't seen his children for days, could he just calmly lay down and fall asleep, or would he want to know what's happened in the interim?

A omewhat disturbing book about children confined. I found it hard to sustain my interest until the end.
